Commissions NOW!I'm in a bad way, and in some serious need of cash, asap!
If you've ever thought about commissioning me for something, now's the perfect time!
Sketches are quick and cheap, and I can usually get those done same-day.
Submit your requests through DA note, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'll do flat-rate sketches for DA-watchers for as long as I can:
$5 for super-quick, rough sketches
$10 for refined and shaded sketches
$15 for a splash of color
Paypal only for these ~ USD
email@example.com is my Paypal ID if you want to commission or donate. Every little bit helps!
Any sketch requested here can be upgraded to any of my other "completion stages" at a later time. All my regular commission info can be viewed HERE.
DangitGosh darn it ~ I'm away from DA for 2 weeks and already I have a pile of over 200 messages to go through. *sigh*
On a slightly more depressing note:
After being on the in house staff for only 5 days, my supervisor at Lisa Frank decided it "wasn't a good fit" and terminated my contract. After weeks of them "loving" the freelance work I did for them, admiring my "talent," and moving me halfway across the country, they just up and fired me after FIVE DAYS. They have completely unrealistic expectations of their artists and don't even give the courtesy of a 90-day probation period, unlike any NORMAL business would. Their communication stinks, and from what I could tell, the only person that worked there that didn't like me was my supervisor. All they want to hear is "yes m'am, it will be done," without knowing HOW it should get done, or a realistic idea of how long it takes.
I was fed nothing but lies and half-truths from management. I was told I was comi
Big NewsI got the job offer from Lisa Frank
so I'm packing up and moving to Tucson, Arizona!
It's all very exciting, and very stressful!
There are just so many things to think about and do before I have to BE there ready to work. Aaaaagh!
Well, at least I'll have my little dog, Olie, to keep me company.
He can tell there's something going on around here, and he's very confused...
Best way to Announce a Livestream?I've been doing a lot more Livestreaming lately,
and I was wondering if I took the time to announce on DA if anyone would even be interested in watching.
I've seen a few different announcement methods around:
Journal Posts & Deviation-edits seem to be the most common.
What method works best for you guys? What time of day/night are folks available to watch?
And would anyone even bother coming?
Upload OverloadJust a heads up for y'all.
I've finally been able to take a minute and go through all the stuff I've done and haven't uploaded to DA since my senior year in college. Final count is over 40 images....
Not to mention the fact that I haven't really been around DA in more than "lurk" form for the past few years, and now I'm pretty clueless about all the formatting changes. What is this Sta.sh thing in my journal here? Glugh?! I'm going to have to play with it....
In other news:
- I graduated from Ringling College and completed Thesis without dying. That was nearly 3 years ago D:
- My mouse, Peter, died about a year after I graduated.
- I got a puppy. His name is Olie. He just turned 2 in April. I will be posting photos
- I started keeping fish. Lots of success and fails. Currently have a desk-tank with a blue dragon-scale betta, 3 zebra danios, and a spotty-tail guppy. An earlier set of guppies had babies that I was abl
back at itI've been neglecting my online galleries for far too long, and I want to come back.
But there's soooooo much I have to update.
This is going to take... some time.
For now, let's start with bumping out that old old old old journal, eh?
journal bumphaven't had time to update my journal in a while and the previous one is no longer relevant...
I'll have to make a proper update later, but the short-hand version is:
"thesis thesis, busy busy."

Backup Contact ListSoooooo.....
My phone went through the wash a couple weeks ago, and I just got it replaced this weekend. I was able to save and transfer a few names & numbers from my old phone to the new one, but most of my contact list was lost.
I'm now attempting to compile a new list of names & numbers I can store someplace more safe/permanent in case this ever happens again.
If you're my friend and you'd like to be in my "phone tree" please send a note with your contact info! Thanks

Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!
Regular Payments / ABs
Some believe that Paypal does not help in disputes over digital goods but a policy
Close To You - Lyrics - Sans VersionTHE FLOWERS OF THE NEW AND LAUGHTER OF THE PAST,
THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL LIKE YOU, BEAUTY UNSURPASSED!
GONE WITH A WHISPER, YOU FALL ASLEEP LIKE DEATH,
BREAKING THROUGH THE EARTH, YOUR SMILE SHINES AGAIN!
MY EMPTY GRATITUDE, ANOTHER EMPTY THANK YOU,
I FINALLY LEARNED REGRET, FROM WORDS I'VE ALWAYS SAID.
NEVER MEANT TO SPEAK TO HURT, YET IT HURT TO PUT IN WORDS,
GOODBYE WHEREVER YOU ARE, GOODBYE UNBROKEN HEART.
IN TRUTH I WANT TO FEEL, THE TRUTH I WANT TO SEE,
I'M TRYING TO EMBRACE YOUR DRIFTING HEART AND SMILE!
WHENEVER I BEGIN TO FEEL THE BURNING TEARS OVERFLOWING FROM MY EYES,
I KEEP ON LOOKING FORWARD AT YOU, HOPING THAT YOUR LIGHT WILL NEVER PASS ME BY!
I WONDER WHAT THE STARS THAT SPARKLE IN YOUR EYES ARE HIDING FROM MY MIND,
HIDING FROM MY OPEN HEART AND FROM YOUR OPEN HEART!
TOGETHER, YOU AND I WILL ALWAYS BE ALIVE, CONNECTED, CLOSE TO YOU I'LL STAY!
AS LONG AS I CAN HOLD YOUR HAND AGAIN AND AGAIN, FOREVER, I WILL FIND MY WAY!
YOU MAY NEVER ANSWER BACK MY CALL BUT YOU SMILE AT ME WITH

Reading Visual Novels Using AGTH/TA/ATLAS/ITH:icononewithrussiaplz::iconsaysplz:Greetings!
This tutorial will explain to you how to read (almost any) Visual Novel in English without prior Japanese knowledge using Translation Aggregator, AGTH or ITH, and ATLAS. These programs do not modify the games files, so they should be safe to use without causing issues with developers.
I will begin with a short explanation as to what these programs are, followed by steps on how to set them up and finally some extra tips and tricks you could use to further the translations!
Feel free to ask questions through comments. Just keep in mind that I'm no expert at these programs and I myself used a tutorial to understand the basics of the programs, so I may be unable to answer some questions. Most links I supply will take you to the developer forums where you can download and ask questions about the specific program. No better help than the kind that comes from the ones who made it!
You can also scroll to the bottom for links to other tut
Open - Animated Painted CharactersPrice starts at $30 and may increase depending how complexity of character~
2 Slots Only~
I will only make feral/alien creatures, no humanoids!
(But things like, werewolves and stuff are fine)
Transparent version must be requested before I start, once the animation is complete, i CANNOT go back and edit the character.
Because of this, if the character is complex, I will be making sure I have drawn the character correctly.
A none moving transparent version will also be made for you.
COMMISSIONS (on hold)
How to order:
Use commission widget with description of your order (for points), note or comment (for PayPal)
You could withdraw your request anytime, until I accept it.
But when it was confirmed, that means I started to draw and there is no way back.
Payment: Points / PayPal
